Science / project plan

Investigation of how climate change on land and ocean affect plants, insects, plankton and ecosystems in NE Greenland. Data is collected over the entire growth season/year by special designed automated instrumentation. These were deployed in 2019 and data will be retrieved and instruments serviced in 2020. We will also test new self-profiling ocean buys, intelligent camera systems and deploy new weather stations to cover the climate gradient from the Greenland ice sheet to the outer coast in the Ella Ø fjord system. We will bring 3 talented students to the field.
